Georgia Ray’s new release Hypnotherapy is a soft rock number that lays out the story of a young broken heart.
Georgia Ray – Hypnotherapy
Even though the reverb-filled intro may suggest a folktronica number, it merely sets the dreamy tone. In fact, the song is a more straightforward pop-rock number in an innocent teenage confessional vein. Past this brief beginning, most of the action is conducted by a guitar, with a few piano chords adding some needed drama.
Georgia Ray’s weepy voice is kept raw, perfectly matching the acoustic guitar-driven soundscape, her fierce yet slightly shaky vocals communicating the youthful angst of someone whose heart has just been broken for the first time. “Hypnotise me so I can try to forget/All our memories like we never met”. Remember that time it felt as if the pain was never going to go away, unless some magical shenanigan managed to erase every single memory of him or her? Remember how impossible it seemed to find your centre once more and just move on? “I don’t know how to be myself anymore without you”, laments our forsaken damsel.
Hailing from and based in Melbourne, Australia, Georgia Ray is a multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter who has been in a love affair with music ever since her childhood days. Citing the likes of Taylor Swift, Paramore and Avril Lavigne as influences (the touch of the first one especially noticeable in this new single), Ray assumedly has a taste for emotional lyrics and has been described as ‘One to Watch’ by the Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI).
Produced by her brother Kyle Gutterson and recorded at Aviary Studios in Abbotsford, “Hypnotherapy” is the first single off her upcoming EP, due in October.
“Georgia Ray’s weepy delivery perfectly translates the youthful angst of someone whose heart has just been broken for the first time”
